It is not every day that one gets the opportunity to get close to the corridors of power. So when the opportunity finally presents itself, one must seize it and make the most of it, even if the place only happens to be the “corridors of Facebook.”
And that was exactly the case of this Facebook user who “pounced on” President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Vice President Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia.
Their offence was that the Vice president’s official Facebook page had posted tens of images of the induction ceremony of the newly sworn in Chief Justice Anin Yeboah on the Veep’s page.
Among other things written below the pictures were these words:
“On Tuesday, 7th January, 2020, I undertook one of the most significant acts in the life of the Republic – the induction into office of the new Chief Justice, the head of the Judiciary, the third arm of government, responsible, above all, for maintaining the integrity of our constitutional order.”
The post, which got over one thousand ‘likes’ and 113 ‘shares’, also managed to get about 46 comments as of this afternoon.
While most of the comments were complimentary and conveyed best wishes for the new Chief Justice, one commentor ‘broke ranks’ and gave his unsolicited piece of mind to the managers of the Ghanaian economy.
Identifying himself as John-Smith Owusu Anokye, the livid facebook user accused the president and his vice of only taking pleasure in ceremonies and misappropriating the nation’s resources only for the betterment of themselves, family and friends.
John-Smith the concluded his comment by calling for the NDC and NPP to be voted out of power.
“This is all that they know, swearing in but nothing to offer to the people just spending our money with family and friends. In fact, this ndc npp should be voted out for Ghana to move on.”
Do you find John-Smith’s comments as a reflection of the frustration of the masses, or you think it is an isolated case of a frustrated individual?
